London: She has over a million `friends` on Facebook, and is a frequemt user of Twitter, but singer Pixie Lott feels social networking has ruined the glamour and mystery that once went with fame.

The "Mama Do" insists new age celebrities are no longer "proper stars" because their life is an open book online, reports dailystar.co.uk.

"Maybe we should get rid of social networking. We don`t have proper stars any more and things like Twitter are partly to blame. I long for the old days of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, stars who had real glamour and mystique," said Lott.
She feels stars must maintain a certain aura about them.

"We only knew so much about their lives, the rest was a mystery. They`d often come out with these wonderful quotes - you wouldn`t be reading their Twitter updates every two minutes. They never looked ordinary - and they would never be photographed jogging in the park.

"That`s how stars should be. Having said that, my fans would be really upset if I stopped tweeting. So I guess a loss of mystique is the price I`ve had to pay," she added.
